How tall is June Allyson

June Allyson's Height

5ft 0in (152 cm)

American actress best remembered for films such as The Glenn Miller Story, Too Young to Kiss, My Man Godfrey, Little Women, Strategic Air Command, The Three Musketeers, The Bride Goes Wild, The Girl in White and Two Girls and a Sailor. The 1991 hollywood songstress book described 5ft1, as did 2000 Cinematic Century but I found a quote by June herself from June 1946 in the Milwaukee Journal where she stated that, "I'm exactly five feet tall but I tell people I'm 5 feet 1 inch. I wear high heels in 'High Barberie' because Van Johnson is so tall"

Rob can you add a photo? Jimmy Stewart looks well over a foot taller in Strategic Air Command!

She looked about the same height on screen as Garland I thought and taller than Powell. 5 ft seems about right.

Watching the Glenn Miller Story today, I would say 5ft about right, not quite as short as Judy Garland or Jane Powell

In Joan Collins biography she states that June was only 5ft in her highest heels

When I met her she was under 5' tall. I'd say June was never more than 4'11". In fact I'm watching a film she's starring in right now on TCM and she comes up to Cecil Kellaway's mouth and he was about 5'8". Same story with Robert Keith who was also 5'8". Keith was the father of actor Brian Keith.
